There won’t be any relief from the ongoing disruption in our lives this September. Mars is strong in his own sign Aries and starts to repeat his moves when he turns retrograde on September 9. Get your new work started before then. Both Jupiter (September 12) and Saturn (September 29) turn direct. Those who have personal planets in 17-30 degrees of Capricorn will be benefited and restricted. Grab the opportunities that present and be smart about dealing with them.
The best way to go through September is to be practical and keep your feet on the ground.
Fall begins on September 22.
